Devotions for After 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting – Day 48

Day 48 The Fullness of Christ

Daily Prayer: “Jesus I want to know you more intimately. I want to experience the fullness of your Holy Spirit and power in my life. I want you to use me to impact this world for you!”

Read focus passage Colossians 2:9-12. As you read, let the exciting promise of the fullness of God in you hit you!

Read out loud the focus verses for today: Colossians 2:9-10“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity [God] lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ…” Repeat this verse over and over to yourself today.

Meditate today: “you have been given fullness in Christ” The amazing declaration of God’s word is that the same fullness of the Holy Spirit that Christ had… has been given to you to bear witness of His love and power to others.      

Spend 30+ min in prayer in the morning praying over this mind-blowing declaration and promise concerning your life in Christ! Do this at other times during the day as well. Weep at the foot of the cross in thanksgiving to God and Christ for all they did to make it possible for you to have the “fullness” of God’s Spirit in you! Think about the unlimited potential your life has for changing the world with such fullness! Claim by faith the fullness of Christ for your life. Surrender yourself to the fullness of Christ to bear witness of His love and power to others today.

Closing prayer: “Holy Lord Jesus, thank you for raising me up with you and giving me your “fullness”. Now as I step out of 40 days of prayer and fasting, use me to change the world.”
